The SYN.DE.BIO symposium is a platform of discussion and dissemination of work that is emerging at the crossroads of design, biology and engineering. 12 international speakers focus on built projects, processes and materials that employ innovative fabrication techniques and design methods to explore and apply biological material to architecture. Advances in the field of synthetic biology, biotechnology and material sciences, as well as new modes of production and simulation are leading towards an increasing multidisciplinary approach to design. The emergence of novel synthetic ecologies and a new sense of materiality is giving us alternative answers to our future built environment.

 

Symposium 01 is the first public event with talks from various network members around the world held at the Bartlett School of Architecture, London. For more information visit www.syndebio.com or email info@syndebio.com
